CEO Netweavers (CEON) is a nonprofit organization consisting of a community of current and past CEO’s, C-Level Executives and Entrepreneurs committed to freely sharing knowledge, skills and developing trusted relationships. Our mission is to place the needs of others first.
We Pay-it Forward by using our experience and expertise in several ways. Our Inflection Point program gives a business leader access to CEON members to solve problems and attain new growth. In our Mentorship program we work with Executive MBA and undergraduate students atKennesaw State University, GA State University,Georgia Tech and Rice University. We are inclusive in our approach, seeking to ensure diversity and equity in all that we do to help the broadest community of people. Every member joins the group to help others succeed.
Members of CEO Netweavers are a trusted and caring group that interacts by getting to know each other and considering ways we may connect each other with colleagues who may be helpful, without any expectation of getting something in return. We think this is rare in the world today.
Netweaving is how we make our philosophy come alive. Each member is a strategic matchmaker that provides help and resources for others.By doing so, each person weaves a piece of our leadership network and instills a sense of obligation to assist others. Netweaving works because: it builds your personal brand as someone people should know; it instills an unintended sense of obligation by the recipient to assist others; and, it improves the attitude of all involved. As with any organization, you should be asking yourself “Why should I join CEO Netweavers? What does this organization bring that I am not currently experiencing in other organizations that I am involved with?”
Well, CEO Netweavers (CEON) offers CEO’s various channels of impact and involvement within the Atlanta business community.
CEON offers you a trusted community and environment where CEO’s can associate and have substantive discussions on topics they are specifically interested in or specific challenges they are encountering.
CEON provides opportunities to fulfill members’ desire to “give back” by using our knowledge, insight and experience to help other businesses and leaders solve problems and challenges.
CEON members model and teach Servant Leadership.
CEON offers exposure to high quality speakers on relevant topics.
These are some of the ways that we engage and enrich each other’s membership and businesses.
Transforming and enriching lives through servant leadership - The Servant Leadership philosophy places the emphasis on the needs of others first by promoting the well-being of those around them. The servant leader demonstrates the characteristics of empathy, listening, stewardship and commitment to personal growth towards others. Servant Leadership is at the core of every CEO Netweaver.
Follow-up and follow through - Netweaving is the process of serving as the strategic matchmaker and acting as a willing resource provider for others.
Build Bridges of Trust - Trusted Relationships are built on mutual respect based upon the authentic and accountable connections of individuals, personal integrity, confidentiality, candor and self-respect. We do what we say we will do.
We are a community of leaders working hard to positivity impact the lives of others.

Through your sponsorship of the CEO Netweavers organization, you will be demonstrating that your corporate values are consistent with and supportive of the values of “pay it forward” Servant Leadership and a commitment to the Atlanta and Houston business ecosystems.
Quite simply, the CEO Netweaver organization would not exist without the support from our sponsors. Their funding and in kind service contributions allow us to meet and become involved in a variety of servant leadership activities to fulfill our goal as stated in our by line of “transforming business and enriching lives through servant leadership.”
An excellent example of one of our activities is our CEO Inflection Point Program. In this program we set up a board of advisors consisting of five to seven CEO Netweaver members who meet with a company to help them address some of their business issues. The team meets with the company three or four times at five to six week intervals. The group openly discusses subjects brought to the group by the company and offers suggestions as to how the company might address the issues. In the past 10 years, 70 companies have participated in the program.
All of the companies have expressed their deep appreciation for the program and have remarked how valuable it has been. With the involvement of four panel members, the time spent with each company easily exceeds 30 hours of high level consulting time. This equates to at least $10,000 of “free” consulting services offered to each company. This community servant leadership activity would not be possible without the support of our sponsors.
